As previously stated, 2015 was the opening year for this park. There are still some finishing touches to be done, i.e. the pool is not finished, and the sites' gravel pads are to be widened and re-leveled in the fall. The owners aim to please and are very enthusiastic about their park. Many of the sites are taken by seasonal people, with weekends being the busiest. The setting is very rural, but retail stores for just about anything are within 10-15 minutes away. It is very quiet there. The utilities work well, including the wi-fi. The sites are nice and wide, too, so you don't feel as if you are on top of your neighbor. We will definitely return next year as we have family in the area and this park is the best one for more than a weekend stay.

We only stayed here for one night, but were able to meet our son and two young children here. They were able to join us and set up their tent on our site for no extra charge, something you don't usually see in a tourist area park. The people here were very nice, and the other campers were quietly all having fun. The sites are nicely spaced and were level. Our only major complaint was the flies! We had them in our motorhome for the next four days. We would come here again.

This is a no frills park owned by the city. It is not particularly pretty, but for an overnight stay works perfectly. There was room for us to stay hooked up at the site (in a 36' motor home). The manager was very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is truly a Resort with a capital R! It is immaculately landscaped with lush trees, lawn, water fountains and gardens. The lots are for sale so many of them have been finished with bungalows, fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, etc. The residents are very welcoming and friendly, and the sites are huge. If you want a vacation from your typical campground, this is the place!

We stayed here for two nights on an August weekend and the park was full, mostly with family groups, but it was very orderly and quiet. Many of the sites are pull-throughs and the spacing is a bit tight, but we had lots of space in front of and behind us, so it didn't seem too restrictive. Our water spigot was leaking and a maintenance man came right over to make it right. This park is city run and nicely priced for full hookups. We would come here again if in the area.

I included the $10 daily entrance fee in the total amount for the nightly rate. This is a very nice camping area, with large sites in the woods. It was very quiet when we were there, even though it is the summer season. There is only electric for service, so we wouldn't use it for long, but for three days it was fine. You can fill your rig with water at the dump area near the front gate. We went to Green Bay and up into the Door Peninsula while here. We were happy to have a strong Verizon signal. We would come here again.

This is a nice county park that we found to be very quiet, even when full. We were in a full service site, but unlike so many other parks, the sites were very well spaced with grass in between the gravel sites. Our site was level and all services worked well. There are some trails that run from the campground and other trails elsewhere in this big park. We would definitely come here again.

We stayed at this park for four days in order to catch up on shopping, laundry, etc. We also did lots of bike riding on Sioux Falls' great bike paths. This park is fairly neat, with mostly permanent residents. But I can't fault the park for much, other than it doesn't give you a homey feeling like so many parks full of transients do. But our site was plenty spacious and all utilities worked well. We would definitely come back for a one or two nights stay.

This is a nice municipal park with mature trees. The sites are very nicely spaced out. We were in site 3 near the office, with full hookups. There seemed to be power issues at the site and the next day we moved to site 27 close to the river, with no sewer hookup but at least the power worked. The management doesn't seem to be interested in giving out any local information despite their website touting that they were on the Lewis and Clark Trail. The second site we moved to had a filthy picnic table; it looked like a previous camper had used it as a grill top and had left grease all over it. We had lots of flies around that kept us from eating outside at both sites. The location is pretty, right on the river, with boats, etc. for rent and a nice beach. We would probably come back here if in the area.

We are learning that the National Park campgrounds are not so great. This is no exception. The only utility we paid for was electricity, so why do they squeeze us in? Our site is really just at the side of a paved road. They have installed large wooden boundary pilings to prevent you from going off the road. The only amenity is a covered picnic table because the sun and heat are relentless. You pay for the showers, which is okay, but the showers have NO hooks, NO shelves, so it is a challenge to take a shower and not get all of your stuff wet. If we were coming back, we would try the KOA just outside of the park, which gets good reviews. There is a campground host who we never really talked to, not much of a host.

As with Legion Lake Campground, there is only a 50 amp connection here, but no water or sewer hookups. The problem is that the pump out (for larger RV's) is located at the east end of the park, near the Game Lodge area, south on the Wildlife Loop Road, and the signage is lacking! So be prepared; come with your water on board or seek out a water spigot that is threaded. Our site was beautiful, spacious and under trees for shade. The fire pits are on the "wrong" side of the site for some reason. The nearby trail horses went by our site continuously; very entertaining! We had a strong Verizon signal in this campground and in the Legion Lodge area. Custer State Park is a beautiful park. We would come here again.

The price of $34 included spreading the weekly$15 entrance fee out over four days that we stayed in the park. Legion Lake Campground was great. We a site close to the immaculate bathrooms. Our site was all paved and level and very long. Plenty of maneuvering room, too. We had a very strong Verizon signal here, so we had a good wi-fi hot spot. The only strange thing about Custer S.P. is that they put the only decent pumpout station way over on the east side of the park on the north end of the Wildlife Loop Road near the Game Lodge Area, not very convenient if you want to pump out during your stay. (They don't even have a sign indicating the location of the pumpout, either, so ask!) The park itself is beautiful; we would come here again.

This campground is perfect for a quick stopover, with long pull through sites. The lady at the office is very nice and helpful about visiting the area. The sites are basically in a gravel parking lot, fairly close together, but with a picnic table, and all very neat and clean. It is very close to both Route 85 and 20. The laundry was economical and very clean also. We would come here again.

Price reflects $30 plus the $7 per day usage fee. We really appreciated the space around our site at his park! The various campgrounds are in different loops with, frankly, different layouts. We were in the first section on a higher level, site S-12. We had tons of space around the RV, picnic table, fire ring, parking, etc. We would definitely recommend it.

The $59 daily rate includes tax for a week's stay. We were really looking forward to this campground. The website certainly indicates a lovely place to stay along the river. First of all, the entrance off Route 66 is a steep one-lane drive, so be prepared. The campground is not very large and it is very congested, so when you get to the bottom of the drive, stop before you go any further. The people who work here are very nice. We were put in site 1, which backs up to the river. We are a 36' motorhome and our back end hung over the river when our front end was in place. Our neighboring travel trailer had to bring in his awning in order for our slide to open. We were lined up in a row with barely any space on either side. We had a cabin on the other side of us. If you enjoy space to spread out, do not come here. There were not many ratings for this park, probably because most of the sites are used by seasonal people. We did get a strong Verizon signal at this campground. Estes Park is a cute town but very congested also in the summer. We would not recommend or come back to this campground, mostly due to the incredibly tight site spacing.
